Description

Start on the left slope and the right hand crimp on a tender flake right in the middle of the west face. Move upward and try avoiding the huge jug in the middle of the face. I don't know that it changes the grade, it just makes it a bit more interesting.

Location

The problem is located right smack in the middle if the west face of the Miller Block. There's an obvious downclimb on the back.

Protection

Pads and a spotter.

Broke the start flake off, today. Still managed to complete the problem (not the direct finish though) using a right hand sidepull at the start. Feel like the direct ascent was harder than the grade before the break, and I'm fairly certain it's only harder now. Fantastic problem! Feb 10, 2017
The flake being gone did make a big difference. I would say that for shorter people the dyno to the lip rim is going to be hard. The hands are crap and the feet are crap. However, once you got the beta for it.. I can't say how hard it'll be. At first I thought v6-... but then after working it some, I decided to settle for a v4, and for taller people v3 maybe. - Just dial the beta, and you'll see why I say this. Feb 23, 2018
